The Server Manager provides the following basic Hyper-V management services:

  • Discovers virtual machines and parent partition running on a physical Hyper-V server.

  • Displays the relationship of virtual machines and the parent partition to the Hyper-V server.

  • Notifies when:

    • A virtual machine is down or loading.

    • A virtual machine has been turned off.

  • Provides impact analysis and diagnosis when a Hyper-V server is down. For example, it diagnoses when a Hyper-V Host Down impacts a virtual machine Down.

  • Displays maps of the physical Hyper-V server and its virtual machines in the Global Console.
